I love them, too. The Old Dark House is still under copyright, so it can't be posted here.

My favorites are: House on Haunted Hill, The Black Raven, The Crooked Circle, The Ghost Walks, The Thirteenth Guest, Topper Returns, Bulldog Drummond's Secret Police, The Rogue's Tavern, and One Frightened Night..

A Shriek in the Night and Midnight Manhunt aren't old house mysteries, but are good mystery/comedies.

These are all worth watching and rewatching.

Awesome! Thanks for your response!

Here's another question-- what movie would you say has the most iconic "dark house" cliches... i.e. the Victorian mansion, candelabras, cobwebs, secret passages, weird butlers, etc... basically everything you'd see in a "Scooby Doo" episode?

Only one film here has all of those clich├ęs, and that's Topper Returns. It's also well produced and acted, and very funny. The bad guy doesn't turn out to be a real estate developer, though.
